Another fishing opener! Weather has warmed the past few days and will be nice this weekend. Water temps are still on the cool side. I would try small shallow lakes where temps will be warmer. Lake Emily will be hit hard this weekend. Other lakes to try would be Pomme de tere, Long, Ann, Reno, and Stenerson. This might be best year for opener on Waska in long time.Start shallow and work deeper. Panfish on Waska has been good this past week. Enjoy the opener!
Water temps have cooled to upper 40’s and we need mid 50’s for good panfishing. Still catching some crappies and sunnies in Starbuck marina. Also crappies on Glenwood end of lake. Reno and Ida has been good for crappies. Check smaller lakes around Alex for crappies. Game fish season starts May 15 and we are looking forward to that!
Same as last week only more consistent!Warm weather has been good for warmer water temps. Go for the most well known lakes and areas.
Water has finally warmed up and both crappies and sunnies are being caught in Starbuck marina. The area between fish hatchery bay and Lakeside has been good for crappies. No reports on small area lakes this past week.
Same as last week. Two weeks of cold and snowy weather is enough. When water warms up the panfish will start biting more consistently.
Not many fishing this past week due to the weather. A few crappies and sunfish being caught in Starbuck marina. Crappies being caught in fish hatchery bay on Glenwood side of Waska. Other lakes worth checking would be Rachael, Freeborn, Mary, Oscar, and Pelican.
Water temp has to warm up just a little bit more and the panfish will start to bite! No fish caught yet but people have tried in Starbuck marina and fish hatchery bay.
A few people fishing in Starbuck marina and fish hatchery bay. Nothing being caught yet as the water is still too cold. I am at the Morris Spring Expo in the Lee Convention Center for the weekend. Stop over and say hi!
Nothing to report! very few people still ice fishing. No wheelers, walking only. I would guess by next week there will be open water fishing.
Very few people out fishing this past week. Ice has pulled away from shore and accesses are bad. Walk out or wheeler with small portable.
